Careful, harmless!
It would be nonsense to say that 'Pure' resembled an atomic bomb, the most terrible instrument of war mankind has invented. Neither is the scent terrible or of monstrous radiance, nor do I share the aesthetic exaltation of the sight of a nuclear mushroom, although the spectacle from a safe distance from the screen does not lack a certain fascination. Nevertheless, I would like to briefly explain which chemical processes take place during a nuclear explosion in order to get back to the actual topic, perfume:

Split a lemon. Bitter vegetable, framed by unsweet creamy bergamot. To trigger a chain reaction, you must extract subatomic particles such as neutrons, protons or alpha particles from other atoms. Sometimes I feel a bit like a cleaner when the lemon (for my taste) is pushed too far to the top. The 'critical mass' is exactly the amount of fissionable material you need to keep the lemon particles reactive. Spicy juniper, herb moss and lovely flowers create an exciting contrast. Association: Leather, slightly rose soapy, a little bit smeared, but quite classically staged. Stupid only if the reaction rate increases so fast that no control is possible anymore. Then the whole thing flies around your ears. The well-known mushroom cloud develops. The shift in nuances that now occurs may be observed for hours. Herbaceous green, sour leathery, with elegant citric in many facets.

The Sillage of 'Pure' is for me the greatest character trait of the fragrance and plus point. He has something fragile, airy about him, you think he has already flown away, then he reports back and even likes to have gained strength. The image of a nuclear explosion therefore seems to be exaggerated and not only fundamentally drawn to the hairs. Rather a small mushroom cloud on the skin that rises inexorably into the atmosphere. The citric head note fireball remains as reserved as the herbs and flowers that mix in. Not a shock wave to kill you. The half-life, however, is above average. I recommend springlike, well-tempered. High summer, why not? It is not a succinct newbie, but a clearly structured lemon of noble quality that combines modern and classic elements.

Moreover, the initiation of an explosion by means of (lemon) nuclear energy is a public health offence. In the case of 'Pure' the thing is harmless.

Unpretentiously Beautiful
There are a few fragrances in Boadicea whose names are really misleading. Or meaningless. Pure - from the beginnings of the brand - luckily does not count.

Pure is a citric fragrance that beautifully focuses on the astringency of bergamot and juniper berries. Without a look at the pyramid I would have landed at Limette in the beginning. And yet there is this citrus peel chord that is so typical of bitter oranges. The unadorned citric of the juniper supports the bergamot chord and not only gives it more presence, but also gives everything an unspoilt - yes, pure and unadulterated - aura. Nothing here is overstated or artificially inflated. Thus the Sillage of the smell remains also always between 6 and 7 points, which is absolutely ok for citric smells.

The mentioned fruits are a short flash in the beginning. Fortunately for me, they leave us after just five to ten minutes. Too often I have had this olfactory fruit punch with tested Boadiceas lately, which I found not only too sweet, but also annoying in the long run. Here he doesn't play any or just the mentioned role of a supporting band, but after one song they also fulfill other obligations. Thanks for that!

The same goes for the flowers, which want to mix with jasmine and rose. Their appearance is limited to a hint and the minimal reinforcement of the fruitiness of the two citrus protagonists.

Already at a very early stage, a sandalwood note can be seen among the fresh astringency, which is wonderfully classically bound with oak moss.

Nothing appears at any time on this fragrance heavy or artificial, even distorted. Taking all the main chords together, one can confidently say that Pure could be a citric chypre with a focus on unadulterated freshness.

The fragrance is very well wearable, wonderfully unagitated and brings a few beautiful summer vibes into the current dreary grey of German January.

Something for purists.

Like me.
